Heading West

Saturday I rode 900 miles, Sunday 1,000 miles and the rest on Monday beating my most optimistic expectations. I was extremely lucky with the weather and traffic was almost non-existent.

NJ, New JerseyThe Garden State.
The state motto speaks for itself.

PA, PennsylvaniaThe State of Independence.
Pennsylvania is a relatively pretty and hilly state and riding through it was interesting.

WV, West VirginiaWild and Beautiful.
Flew through it and didn’t notice anything.

OH, OhioSo Much To Discover.
I discovered: practically all roads are two lanes. A third lane will sometimes appear but will immediately disappear. Everyone’s goal is to drive in the left lane going the speed limit, 18 wheelers are not excluded from this phenomenon. Where is my BFG 9000?

IN, IndianaThe Hoosier State.
The speed limit rose to 70mph. The roads look like they are from when the state was first colonized. Like a pattern every 500 ft was an invisible bump that would shake my loaded bike. My gas mileage dropped from 54mpg to 48mpg, must be my increased speed to 80mph @ 6.5k rpm.

These are big freaking tires:

Everything is sweetened by risk
